Mental Health is more than what shows on the surface. A good outfit, neatly tied hair, well-spoken words, and a smiling face does not reflect a person’s good mental health. Often, we overlook what goes inside of a person and focus only on the physical aspects of an individual. The need to talk about mental health and understand why it stands important is essential. FairGaze is a staunch supporter of propagating and talking about the well-being of students and the people associated with them.

With the alarming statistics of suicide of young children due to various mental problems, the current scenario seems to be one that is devoid of a comfortable, open space for youngsters to learn and talk about what they are going through. FairGaze has accepted this challenge through its interactive webinar and campaign initiatives that provides a safe space to learn more about mental health. Our platform also has counsellors for guiding and counselling these young kids and their parents to face the problem and also provide solutions for the same. FairGaze believes in making children aware of mental health, and helping them learn the importance of well-being so that a depressed child in good clothes and a smiling face is sent as much help as possible.

Past Campaigns:

For the same, FairGaze organized two interactive categories of webinars aimed at fostering and improving our children’s mental health. Our Well-Being Webinar and Coffee With Counsellors Session do the job perfectly.

FairGaze also launched a campaign #Let’sOpenUp to mark World Mental Health Day and encourage students to open up about their stories.

With two special episodes of Well-Being Webinar and Coffee With Counsellors, children were made aware about mental health and their stories were heard.

World Mental Health Awareness Campaign

Mental health is everyone's concern. We all have times when we feel stressed or frightened or anxious. Most of the time these feelings pass over short period of time.

World Mental Health Awareness Week

But sometimes they become a more persistent issue and this could happen to anybody.Everyone is different. You may recover from these feelings while someone else may feel weighed down by it leading to related chronic issues.

Your psychological state doesn’t always stay constant. It can change as circumstances change and as you progress through different stages of your life. However, the stigma attached to psychological problems makes things worse. People feel uncomfortable talking about it and avoid seeking help.

Students are among the most affected segment of society but also the most ignored section of the society. Students are facing multiple issues which includes peer pressure, academic pressure, career growth, family issues but they are largely ignored or at best not attended to at all.

The students are afraid to share their emotions and their feelings of pain, fear, sufferings, anxieties, love, sexuality, aggression, etc. which remains suppressed and manifests sometimes as suicides. Let us encourage students to open up and talk it out without the fear of being judged. Let us encourage them to be themselves.

On the occasion of World Mental Health Day on 10th October observed by World Health Organization, FairGazeis organizing World Mental Health Awareness Week - An online campaign for 5 Days starting from 5 October 2020 to 10 October 2020 engaging students from all over the country.
